Our Client’s Say…

  • Ian McCue, Creative Producer at Thomas & Friends

    “As a Creative Producer, it can be hard to let go. That’s why my doctor recommended Kong Studios. A trustworthy animation team who will take your creative brief and deliver more than you could ever have hoped for.  It’s good to work with likeminded people who are passionate about their work. That’s why I, too, recommend Kong Studios for all your animation needs. They won’t let you down.”
